What I've Been Doing With the Economy Being So Bad
There's a lot of advice out there about what to do when sales are poor. With the economy being so bad, my sales are poor. Here's what I've been doing. I have been promoting and promoting my work. In the meantime, I've been learning new skills. (All of this has been good advice.) I love copper! I've been working with copper wire to learn new wire working techniques.
I started out by coiling wire in reverse coils to make this bracelet.
How about this ring? (Luckily, I don't turn green from wearing copper!) It's coiled, too!
This lead up to a pattern I love!
Did you know that this pattern is over 4,000 years old. Jewlery made using this design has been found with mummies in ancient Egypt.
Since I needed new jewelry for the Bead and Button Show, I decided to make a necklace to match the bracelet!
I'm one happy camper!
